Leaky faucets

Seems like every faucet in my house has a "drip". How do you fix these, short of ripping the wall, faucet, etc. out? Is there any hope?

Cool

Leaky faucets are easy to fix.
You just have to know what type that you have (ball valve, cartridge or disc), and get the right bubble-pack repair kit at the local big box.
Can you see what brand they are?

I have a kohler single handle faucet in the kitchen, kind of a flimsy feeling plastic thing. In the bathroom, I have kohlers (i'm fairly certain) as well, and they are set up with knobs on each side of the faucet, kind of old fashioned looking with ceramic handles. Same in the shower. Thanks for the reply!

Cool

You need to turn the main water valve off, disassemble each faucet and take the inner parts with you to the store for replacement repair kits, and do them all at once.
Store personnel should be able to get you exactly what you need for each faucet.
Good Luck!
